Alyce Lomax

For about a decade, Alyce Lomax has written about and analyzed stocks for The Motley Fool. She often writes about retail and consumer goods stocks, but her investing passion is in incorporating socially responsible investing factors into her analysis. She manages the real-money Prosocial Portfolio and writes a twice-weekly column specifically focused on environmental, social, and corporate governance issues for Fool.com. Her goal is to find stock ideas for investors who want to invest in positive businesses that will create positive portfolio returns as well. Long ago, she studied English literature at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and believes that literary-style deep analysis is just as important as financials when assessing companies’ “stories” and standing in the world. Alyce also occasionally writes short fiction in her spare time, and even more occasionally it’s published.

Re: Environmentally Friendly Fracking

LittleBluestem,

Totally agreed about getting away from fossil fuels as opposed to full focus on stuff like this. As long as they are still focusing on it, though, I guess coming up with greener ways is the best it will get for now. [more]

Re: Alyce - how about the ALS Ice Bucket Challen

SkepikI,

Thank you -- I'm sorry to hear that your dad had emphysema. It is a horrible disease. I do have to say, good for him for quitting at 70. (And your spouse quitting too.) I'm sorry to hear his last years were miserable, but I do hope [more]

Re: Alyce - how about the ALS Ice Bucket Challen

I get that a lot -- I do smoke, and I'm actively trying to quit right now. This is unfortunately a habit I've had for decades. As an investor, though, I wouldn't invest in tobacco companies.

Truth is, I imagine that plenty of socially [more]
